Dave Grohl Drums Along To Nirvana Classic At NYC Book Event


Dave Grohl thrilled fans with a mini-concert on October 5th at Manhattan's Town Hall. Ultimate Classic Rock reported Grohl, who was promoting his new memoir The Storyteller – Tales Of Life And Music, played drums along to Nirvana's classic Nevermind track “Smells Like Teen Spirit,” as well as acoustic readings of his Foo Fighters gems “My Hero” and “Everlong.”

Grohl, who by the mid-'90s was already world renowned for his work in Nirvana, told us a while back that upon launching the Foos, he was nervous about fronting his own band: “When the Foo Fighters started playing, it was scary, because singing upfront with a guitar in your hand and having everyone stare at you as the lead vocalist is a lot different than just chiming in backup vocals when you're behind the drums. So, I was nervous, and actually when recording the first Foo Fighters record, I had never belted it out in the studio before, so I didn't know what my voice sounded like.”

Foo Fighters will next perform on October 22nd in Atlanta at the Shaky Knees Festival.
